The Society for Neuroscience (SfN) course was spear-headed by Dr. Jane Roskams, and included world-renowned experts in neuroinformatics showcasing their tools and datasets. Dr. JB Poline, a new MNI faculty member and HBHL hire, discussed the need for data publishing and the Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform, as well as data and compute management software that will eventually comprise the backbone of NeuroHub - namely, CBRAIN and LORIS.

Initiated more than 10 years ago by a collaboration between the McGill Centre for Integrative Neuroscience in Montreal, Canada and the Jülich Research Centre in Germany, the BigBrain atlas is the highest-resolution 3D digital map of the human brain produced to date. The atlas was painstakingly reconstructed from 7404 separate sections of a human brain.

Dear colleagues,

Today marks the end of my tenure as Vice-Principal (Research and Innovation) at McGill University. It has been an honour and a deeply enriching experience to serve McGill and its research community for nearly seven years in this role.

Over the past weeks and months, many people have asked me what I plan to do next. Although the Research and Innovation team gave me a lovely McGill oar as a parting gift, I will not be rowing off into the sunset any time soon.
